Kathyrn Hunter & Blackbird Letterpress

I quite enjoy Hunter's bold simplicity. Her cutouts, collages and block prints are strong, sometimes quaint and wistful, but always, to my mind, invigorating and life affirming.

The first work of hers I stumbled upon was "She Smiles" (pictured here). Viewing it, I can't help but feel overcome with a sense of resiliency, the strength of this woman's heart fueled by, not what I've come to read as a smile of joy but, rather, confidence. Of course, that is an entirely personal interpretation; I know virtually nothing of the artist or her work. I only know what I like.
